Education Think Piece #1: Girls’ education
Girls’ education is improving, but not for all girls – how can we accelerate change?
Throughout the region, there are countless groups of children who experience significant constraint on their capability to learn. These include children with disabilities, children from an ethnic minority, children displaced by emergency or conflict and children living in extreme rural and/ or impoverished conditions.
While both boys and girls make up these excluded groups, the constraints that are experienced – be it due to extreme poverty, displacement or disability – are compounded and multiplied when they are experienced by girls.
